The Gunners took the lead at the home of their rivals as good buildup play from Danny Welbeck down the right flank found Olivier Giroud, who’s scuffed shot fell nicely to Mesut Ozil and he buried his third goal in as many games.
However, Spurs rallied after going behind and as the first half drew to a close the hosts looked on top. It was a bit too much for Danny Rose though as the left-back kicked the ball at Welbeck and there was some afters between the two England internationals.
Tottenham continued to look strong after the break and they leveled things for none other than their in-form striker Kane, who was in the right place at the right time to slam the ball past the erratic David Ospina.
Then as full-time approached and a draw looked more and more likely, Kane stepped up again and headed Mauricio Poachettino’s men ahead in what was a Man of the Match performance for the youngster.
